There is something about a dark lip during the fall on dark complexion that just blows me away every time. My preference in lipstick definitely lies in the brighter hues. Reds and pinks are usually my ultimate favorites. However, I love a super, smooth, silky lipstick that holds its own without needing any help from a liner or a primer. This lipstick did the trick.
I achieved this look by doing a pretty simple application of my go to Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer followed by some highlighting with my Tarte Shape Tape Concealer in the color deep. I love this stuff because it’s super creamy and very bendable. After getting a smooth foundation to work with I contoured a smidge with the Smashbox contour kit and highlighted with the Laura Gellar Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator in Gilded Honey. At first, I finished the look with a really pretty, bright pink lip and soon switched to the limited edition Mac Lipstick called Dark Side. The cream finish on this lipstick is everything. It made achieving my dark lip pretty easy!
Dark lipstick is bold and perfect to make a statement in the fall season to complete your look. I especially love a dark lip with a lighter colored outfit because it creates a beautiful contrast. I paired this dark lip look with a white knit sweater from H&M. The lipstick is a bit unexpected but totally works.
This fall, I’m challenging myself to not just go with the same old red lipstick I rock all the time, but really push myself outside of my comfort zone to rock something a little different. This lip was the perfect addition to complete my look. Do you struggle with rocking darker lipstick colors? I challenge you to join me on this journey! Tag me on instagram with your dark lipstick of choice! Let’s slay together, Queen!
I have a makeup tutorial of how I achieved this full look coming soon 🙂
